The Ultimate Holiday Gift Buying Guide

This year let’s support small businesses in our own woodworking community. I published a video on YouTube asking for people to submit what they sell and where to buy it. Here is a list, in no particular order, of small businesses or individuals who make stuff to sell and a link to where you can buy from them. I have zero affiliation with this list and have nothing to gain or lose if you do or do not buy from them.

According to a report issued by the Small Business Administration (SBA) in 2019, small businesses account for 44 percent of economic activity in the United States. Small businesses create two-thirds of new jobs and deliver 43.5 percent of the United States’ gross domestic product (GDP). –
